Mike McCune watches a set line up and reel down a gravel bar at high tide. With an average tidal range of around 20 vertical feet, the surf in Kachemak Bay changes fast. That bar is my favorite spot, and this was a perfect day for photos and surfing. The pleasure of photographing â€“ and the pain of missing those rides â€“ was excruciating.
Surfer's Path Issue 65
Surfers share some stroke on a crisp February morning at Bear Glacier. This photo is one of just a few images I kept from this morning. My camera had shifted in its waterproof housing, and all the incredible images I remember capturing were out of focus. This one just had too much soul in it to toss.
A quick shot before heading out on a winter morning. The ocean steams on cold mornings, which can give the illusion of warmth. The first flush of water through your suit snaps you back to reality.

Itâ€™s pretty ridiculous how many waves there are on Puerto Ricoâ€™s north coast when the south winds blow and thereâ€™s swell. This beach in particular has been under attack by overzealous developers despite being a regular nesting ground for leatherback turtles and home to peaks like this under the right conditions. Thanks to some equally zealous Puerto Rican environmentalists itâ€™s safe, for now.
I don't know what to say about this photo. It blows my mind and leaves it blank - as clean as the new - driven snow!
